BISC Lincoln Park Student's Journey to Global Games

For the third year in a row, British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park, made the 1,550-mile journey to the considerably warmer climate of Orlando, Florida. For some of the Year 6 athletes, it was their first experience of being away from home, and certainly their first experience of such a vast sporting event as the Global Games.

Athletics Director, Adam Webb, shared how they found their first opportunities to try their hand at a variety of familiar and unfamiliar sports.

We asked Ilana what she enjoyed most, “I really enjoyed volleyball because it’s a lot of fun and my team is improving a lot.” When we asked her if the Global Games has been a positive experience she responded,  “It creates different connections between other kids you wouldn’t normally get a chance to meet.”

Lily has had the advantage of having an older sister at the Chicago, South Loop, campus. “My sister has been for three years and she said it’s a really fun experience and I wanted a chance to show my sports ability”. She certainly showed her coaches how much she loves to compete, but better still she enjoyed everything that Global Games threw her way, “Mostly, I enjoyed how active I was and being with our friends and participating in new sports I haven’t tried before.”

Both Louie and Ronin have also continued to explore new opportunities. “I reallyed enjoyed hanging out with my friends and I liked the extra activities like the STEAM tent because if you’re not doing a sport you can do something else”, Louie explained. Despite being the youngest school group at the Games, Ronin views this as an incredible learning opportunity, “It’s been fun because there are no easy wins so you have to fight for everything and there’s always a way to get better.”
